Racist Runs Rampant But GOP Gets Social Media Boot

The bias of left leaning social media is constantly on display. If not in the constant removal of conservative based outlets, the dismissal of attacks made by those in its favor is a constant reminder.

The latest glaring example comes after Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan posted a video overflowing with anti-Semitic views.

“God does not love this world. God never sent Jesus to die for this world. Jesus died because he was 2,000 years too soon to bring about the end of the civilization of the Jews. He never was on no cross. There was no Calvary for that Jesus,” Farrakhan shared on both Facebook and Twitter.

While the behavior is nothing new for the minister, it is unsettling that neither platform has seen fit to remove his posts. Especially given the litany of lesser reasons that have been used to ban Republican viewpoints.

For example, The Daily Caller had its Twitter account suspended for posting “Learn to code” a as joke for laid-off journalists to seek other sources of income. 

Or journalist Meghan Murphy being banned and subsequently suing Twitter all because she refused to refer to a transgender woman as “he.”

Austin Peterson was banned from Facebook after he shared “Never let a crisis go to waste,” referring to the crack down in New Zealand on gun laws.

Policing opinion on the internet is surely a herculean task, but it’s odd to see a highly visible profile like Farrakhan’s be allowed to make such openly hateful remarks while conservatives are banned for using the wrong pronoun.

  1. My rights were violated by Twitter. I was banned for no reason and made the decision that I would not try to get re-approved and would never use it again. However, this is a public media and our family is angry that these folks are allowed to censor conservatives with no consequences. Freedom of speech has been attacked and this problem needs to be corrected and it appears only Congress has the authority to correct this problem.
